Does Using a Dildo Take Away One’s Virginity?

Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad

Question

I know masturbation is haram. However, all the discourse on sex toys only mentions non-penetrative ones like a vibrator. So, are dildos before marriage the equivalent of actual Zina (fornication)? Does it take away virginity?

Answer

Thank you for your question.

Virginity

Using dildos does not take away virginity.
